Green economy modelling report for South Africa

This report assessed potential opportunities and options to promote a green economy, with a focus on key economic sectors as set out by the South Africa’s National Development Plan – Vision 2030. A modelling exercise compared scenarios of investments directed to business-as-usual, with scenarios allocated to four critical sectors to a green economy in South Africa, namely: energy, agriculture, transport and natural resource management. The findings of the study showed that strengthening natural resource management is fundamental for sustained economic development and societal well-being.
